AllergyEats Helps Restaurant Diners Make Safe Choices

The internet’s fastest growing resource for food allergy safe restaurant information, AllergyEats has reached it’s first anniversary. The peer-based website allows allergic diners to share information on safe restaurants across the country, helping many people eat out again without worrying about potential allergy attacks.

Free to use, the AllergyEats websites has over 600,000 current restaurant listings. Food allergic diners are invited to rate the restaurants they’ve eaten at on a number of allergy-friendliness factors. Menus that feature gluten-free and allergy-safe foods are also listed, as well as certification information and web links to restaurant websites.

The website now has over 10,000 regular monthly users. As one of the only large sources of dining information in the food allergy community, AllergyEats provides an important service. Members engage in multiple ways, including posting ideas and tips on Facebook and Twitter. The website’s founder started the service after frustrating experiences trying to find restaurants willing to accommodate his children’s specific food allergies.

Diners with special food needs can easily find a restaurant willing to meet their needs by searching for highly rated options in their area. This eliminates the need to call every option in the phone book to find a place to eat dinner. It also helps them send a message to restaurants who aren’t willing to become allergy-friendly that they are losing revenue because of their decision.

With over 12 million people in America reporting some form of food allergy, restaurants need to realize that 4% of the population will be unable to eat at their establishment if they’re not willing to adapt. AllergyEats has received praise and endorsements from the Gluten Intolerance Group and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. It aims to be a source for both safe dining information and food allergy education and empowerment.
